    It's driving me nuts trying to guess his/her sex LOL So far Scooter has some tail feathers and looks like a few underbelly feathers. Scooter has had big feet from the day he/she hatched (much bigger than any of the Pekins I hatched out) so I'm not sure I can go by his/her feet. I just had to get that off of my chest. I'm hoping Scooter is a girl but will still love the little booger if he/she is a boy :)

    I hate when I have a quite one who want talk at all when I pick them up... I get too impatient and need to know early sometimes - especially if I have orders for ducklings. I dont like to sell them until I know for sure...But even naming - sometimes I wait to know as well.
